Special Issue on "Materials Engineering for Batteries and Nanobiosensors"

Recent demands for materials science with its huge applications in “battery and biosensor” areas has created diverse effects on analytical assessment such as environmental monitoring, clinical diagnosis, molecular detection, and energy storage devices. The advancement of nanomaterials/ nanotechnology has been leading the science for the development of current market trends globally.

For designing advanced nanobiosesnors, innumerable engineered materials are necessary in developing interdisciplinary approaches. Usage of these innovative materials helped researchers to build solventless biosensing devices using a variety of advanced and sophisticated technologies. These biosensors are highly sensitive, perfect for on-spot detection, biocompatible, less time-consuming, required minimum instrument facilities, and thermally steady process.

On the other hand, batteries are the most recent addition to energy storage and bioelectronics applications. They have tremendous promises in diverse fields. Still there problems exists with their low stability, energy conservation, and overall performance. In view of such developments, it is important to discuss the recent advances in areas of battery and biosensing that are based on various engineered nano-biomaterials.  

Our possible focus will be on improvement of sensing efficiency, power density, energy density, chemical catalytic activity and energy conservation. Hence, this special issue will cover real challenges in experiments as well as solutions through original research articles and review papers. The special issue will discuss about recent trends and progress made on nanomaterials for battery and biosensing applications. The highlight of this issue will be collation of important articles on nanomaterials, their synthesis, characterization and development of integrated batteries and miniaturized biosensing devices for technological, scientific, and industrial purposes.
